I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Company is on a mission to improve the health of the communities it serves. It's great to work somewhere where people really believe in what they are doing. Leadership and company believe in making decisions based on evidence.

Cons

Lots of stakeholders - everyone can say no or get in the way of an effort, few will say yes and push it forward. Too many people who aren't good enough at their jobs - KP doesn't manage people out for poor performance.

Advice to Management

More empowerement and more accountability please.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Organized mostly, nice pay scale and benefits.

    Cons

    Don't always listen to RNs as to what their needs are, Ex: staffing. They consistently staff as few nurses as possible, and we have been stuck quite a few times trying to figure out how we were going to handle the patient load.,

    Advice to Management

    Would be helpful to listen to us more, spend bit more time here so that you can see the flow of the unit and how we handle what we're given staff wise for our current patient load.
